Salon@Home: Adrienne Ross Scanlan

Friday, September 9, 2022 13 Elul 5782

6:00 PM - 9:00 PMOnline with meal pick-up at TBH

In keeping with Elul and the High Holy Days, our September speaker will be Adrienne Ross Scanlan on “Environmental T’Shuvah in Spirit and Action.” Join Adrienne as she applies thoughts on t’shuvah from Rabbi Alan Lew and Rabbi Jonathan Sacks to research-proven, local, hands-in-the ground actions, from rain gardens to tree planting, that restore salmon runs, mitigate climate change, and deepen our spiritual commitment to nature.

Adrienne is the author of Turning Homeward – Restoring Hope and Nature in the Urban Wild (2017 Washington State Book Award Finalist), which weaves memoir with science-based nature writing to tell her story as a Jewish newcomer to the Pacific Northwest who discovers a sense of home by restoring the nature that is close to our lives.  As a (sub) urban naturalist and citizen scientist in NOAA’s Longfellow Creek stormwater studies, Adrienne saw firsthand how stormwater runoff is destroying coho runs. Her current restoration project is to plant 1,000 trees in the Puget Sound region.


While we can not be physically together, we can still share in food and conversation at the TBH Shabbat Salon. Dinner provided by Nineveh is available for pre-order, and you can pick it up at TBH on Friday evening before the salon begins.  Pick-up time assignments are sent out the day before the Salon. 

Erev Shabbat services will be at 6:00 pm, after which we can eat together and hear from our featured presenters. Speaker begins at approximately 7:15 pm.
